Step 1 - sell your Accent
Step 2 - buy a car that is actually fast or can be made fast
Step 3 - enjoy going fast

Your Accent will never be fast. This is not a Honda where you bolt on thousands of dollars worth of parts and you're done. The Alpha motor was never designed to handle big power and unfortunately, if you want to go fast, the only viable option is to swap in a Beta motor from a Tib. And at that point I would just recommend buying a faster car.

I messed around with my suspension on my Accent and made it fun to drive. I installed a short ram intake and made my car SOUND fast. It's a small fun car that is low on power, accept it.

Depending on what gains you are expecting there are some things you can do. As stated lower / firm it up and make it fun to drive . You can get a lil better gas mileage and a bit of power from a SRI / CAI and good free flowing exhaust. Still be a good lil daily driver too.

Accent go fast...

pas1216 gave me the same advice. I kept the Accent but bought a Sonata. It goes much faster!

I'm happy :D
